Burlingame Residence TwoTraditional Kitchen, San Francisco
What Houzz contributors are saying:
If you are worried that navy blue is a masculine color, take that thought out of your mind! In kitchens with light cabinetry, navy blue patterned fabrics and upholstery pulls in a feminine vibe. It adds major color and rich beauty. Try a whimsical pattern versus a solid or geometrical one.
Swipe a bright hue for a neutral one. In the 1980s, this kitchen would have had bright yellow everywhere you see tan, and some gingham thrown in here and there. All it really takes to update some country rooms and add sophistication is a bit of editing, a new coat of paint and perhaps trading out one of the bright colors in the palette for a more subdued neutral.
